It is well known that Mykonos has it all. Namely, the Island of the Winds offers archaeological treasures that echo its historical richness, beauty, which combines harmoniously the natural with the manmade, around the clock parties which reflect its revitalizing energy, and luxurious services that match its cosmopolitan aura.
That very scenery makes you wonder whether there is anything else that a place for vacation could possibly include. Yet, there is something more that compliments the island’s atmosphere, and makes it even more complete. That something is the food.
Indeed, Mykonos has already built a notable reputation for fine dining with choices that range greatly in order to satisfy even the most demanding palates. The culinary experience though is definitely not exhausted, or limited to the gourmet restaurants with international cuisine.
To the contrary, for justifying as a sophisticated traveler rather than a tourist, or a visitor you may also taste the local cuisine, which in Mykonos is definitely worth the bite.
For doing so, you can leave your top luxurious villas for a while, and take your time to walk around the island in order to explore what Mykonos tastes like. Some of the classic dishes that represent its gastronomical spirit include the so called mostra with kopanisti, which is a spicy flavored cheese with creamy texture, the delicious handmade sausages, and the famous louza, which is dried out thin slices of pork seasoned with local spices, and last but not least kalathaki, which is an excellent sweet delicacy and resembles an almond cake.

For your cozy moments

In more detail, the food is prepared out in the open, as there is no electricity to support the establishment, and the grilled delicacies are served table by table, due to the order of arrival. It is also worth mentioning that this alternative situation is taking place on a wonderful shaded patio with a great view of the sea.
